Alfalfa is one of the most nutritious forages our mama cows can have. So, we try to always have some growing on our farm. Unfortunately, a stand of Alfalfa only lasts for a few years. This year was a replanting year in one hayfield. However, Alfalfa we planted in the optimum window of late August-early September didn’t see enough rain to germinate until recently. The baby Alfalfa pictured should be several inches high by now. We hope these small plants can store enough energy to hold on through the coming winter.
